Hey guys.

I just brought a new Samsung W531 Mobile Phone On Telecom

And what a awsome phone!


But...

I just wanting to know if there is memory cards avalible for this model.

because a class mate of mine has the upgrade of this "Samsung a920" and he has a small socket on his phone for more memory, he showed me the chip in his phone, he has a  A 32Mb card, and its tiny, He told me that I also have a memory socket on my phone.

He took the battery cover off and you can see gap above the battery with a arrow pointing up. If you look closly into the socket, you can see terminals.

We tryed inserting his memoery card into my phone, his card was a tad to big for mine.

So there has gotta be some kinda memory card for this phone! But I cant find any, And if there is any out there what is the card model number that I need??


Any Ideas?


Thanks

The W531 does not support external memory. The slot you are seeing is the one at the top of the battery area I assume? It just a generic phone chassis with that capability there, but this model does not use it.

Actually the slot underneath the battery is for a Sim Card, this model phone is a Dual network phone that can be used on both a CDMA network and GSM network, this allows the phone to roam overseas on the gsm network (Excluding Canada) however the phone is sim locked to an O2 sim card supplied by telecom for roaming only and can not be used within NZ on the Vodaphone network

Yes yes. I actually have one of these (with a working Vodafone Sim Card), the slot I'm referring to is the one above the battery. Looks like it was designed for a MicroSD card but not in use on this model
